Back Up of Enterprise Reporter

One SQL Server® database is created and used by Enterprise Reporter and should be included with the regular SQL Server® backup. This Discovery Management database has a default name of dbReporter.

How to Deploy Enterprise Reporter to Another Computer After a Disaster

If the original computer is unavailable due to disaster or hardware failure, Enterprise Reporter may need to be deployed on a new computer. The Enterprise Reporter database will be required.

This step may or may not be needed depending on how the initial configuration of Enterprise Reporter was done. For example, if the database was created on a common SQL Server® and the Enterprise Reporter server was on a separate computer, then the database is still available for use. If SQL Server® was installed on the same computer where Enterprise Reporter was installed, and that computer was damaged, then SQL Server® must be installed on the recovery computer and the Enterprise Reporter database must be restored on the recovery computer or on another SQL Server®.
6
Click Select/Upgrade Existing Database in the Database Wizard to allow Enterprise Reporter to make all of the necessary connections to the database and click Next.
NOTE: If SQL Server® is installed on the same recovery computer as Enterprise Reporter, review the popup message about upgrading Enterprise Reporter. Select “I understand and wish to continue”.
